A Family Album of Thanksgiving

Susie Lundau has invited me to a hastag party called the #Blessed Project. I am honored to be one of the guests and dedicate this blog to the Thanksgiving I have for my wonderful family.

So let’s jump right in.

I am thankful for a loving wife and companion of 49 years, a vision from the day I first laid eyes on her.


I am thankful that we have enjoyed relatively good health through all these years. She remains the beautiful blue-eyed beauty that I fell so quickly for those many years ago.


I am thankful for a wonderful daughter who has raised a family while at the same time, having a very successful career. She has remained close to us and calls us often to give us updates on  their lives and a feeling that we are still a big part of her life.


Thankful that she found a wonderful husband who has also worked hard to raise two children.


I am thankful for a marvelous son who is such a tender soul. He has taught me what courage and determination is all about as he has lived his life with a difficult handicap and several adversities long the way. He is pictured here with his nieces. He is very devoted to his family.


So devoted, in fact, he still hangs with his father even when the latter has his episodes of 60’s flashbacks!


I am thankful for two terrific granddaughters who bring me such joy and happiness and pride. They are a treasure in every sense of the word.


I am thankful for my sister-in-law (my wife’s sister) who has truly become the sister I never had. She and her husband continue to shower kindness on us every day.


And lastly, I am thankful for these two furry bundles of joy who on real cold nights burrow way down under the covers to keep our feet warm!


And thanks to you, Susie, for helping remind me of the many blessings I have had throughout the years. And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
